A Lost Synthpop Classic
With so many synthpop records being released in the early 80’s it was inevitable that some good ones would slip through the net and not get the acclaim they deserved. For example, Is There A Reason by The Mood, from 1981.
In their short life span they released five singles and no albums. I’ve been championing this one as a lost classic for over 25 years now and most people I’ve played it to agree, apart from those who have an aversion to the genre. If you’ve ever liked synthpop give this a listen.
You can find out a little bit more about The Mood on this wikipedia entry.
